But instead Deschamps chose Adil Rami, even though Rami was not on the reserve list.But as Frances defensive woes worsened, with Jeremy Mathieu being ruled out with a calf injury, Umtiti finally got called up on May 28.Just in time.Ironically, Umtiti took Ramis place in the lineup, making his international debut against Iceland in the quarterfinals. Having previously overlooked him, Deschamps is now a big fan.He knows that I believe in him, despite his young age, Deschamps said Saturday at a pre-match news conference. Some people arent even mature at 30 while some are at (22) -- which is his case.It has been a hectic few weeks for Umtiti, who is joining Barcelona from Lyon for a reported fee of ?25 million ($27.6 million).His upsurge in form is surprising given how poorly he played during last seasons Champions League, where Lyon finished bottom of its group. But Umtiti finished the season strongly, as Lyon hit form to finish second in the French league behind Paris Saint-Germain.Born in the Cameroonian capital of Yaounde, he rose through Lyons widely-admired youth academy before making his debut in the 2011-12 season.Against Germany, Umtiti made two crucial interventions.The first came in the 32nd minute when he stole the ball from forward Thomas Mueller just as he was about to shoot. Early in the second half, with Germany 1-0 down and pressuring strongly, he made a key interception to thwart a dangerous break by winger Julian Draxler.Umtiti also passed well from the back and cleared danger with commanding headers from crosses.Technically hes ready, mentally hes ready, veteran France right back Bacary Sagna said. Its the start of something special for him. Nike Huarache Tilbud/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> . -- Aldon Smith believes he is on the path to being sober for good. Nike Roshe Run Tilbud/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> .

Lewis Hamilton says he will be interested to see who puts themselves forward to be his teammate at Mercedes next season.After Nico Rosberg shocked the motor racing world with the news of his retirement following his title success this year, Mercedes is set to start the search for his replacement on Monday. Niki Lauda has revealed that several drivers have been in touch about the vacant seat, but no names have been formally linked to the team beyond speculation in the press.Asked if he had any words advice for potential candidates, Hamilton joked: If you cant stand the heat, dont come!No, its a great environment. When youre in the Mercedes family its a beautiful place to be. Its probably the only team where you are a part of the family, I would imagine. If you drive for Mercedes you generally are a part of Mercedes for life, unless you burn that bridge and go somewhere else.So I would just say for a driver thats coming, theres nothing to be afraid of in respect to being a part of this great team. Im interested to see who would want to be my team-mate and Id respect anyone who would want to.Hamilton says he is not fussed about being a part of the selection process, but believes some drivers would be a better fit than others.Honestly I really dont care, but I guess Id have to think that if they want to talk to me they can talk to me about it. Nike Air Huarache Dame/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal">. Ultimately, it would have to be someone who would work well in the team.There will be stronger characters and less-strong characters who will be able to deal with the competition or not be able to deal with the competition. Some drivers who would take alternative routes to be able to deal with the competition. There will be a good and bad one out there for sure. Id be more than happy to help with that analysis.Hamilton and Rosberg experienced several tense moments during their time as teammates at Mercedes, but the three-time world champion is confident he will finish ahead of anyone he is paired with next season.Ive never needed a teammate to be able to push me, but the better the driver the better it is for me when I finish ahead of him. You need someone with good values to represent the team in a positive way, a good work ethic and consistency so we can win the constructors championship.Daniel [Ricciardo] and [Max] Verstappen are very very consistent [for Red Bull] so in terms of challenging for constructors titles, which is the teams first goal, we need to make sure its equally as consistent as we were before. Cheap NFL Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap Jerseys From China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Wholesale Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> NFL Cheap Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> ' ' '
